South of the Border Fisherman's StewA fusion recipe combining the traditional Portuguese stew with South of the Border flare!

Portuguese Fisherman’s Stew is traditionally made with linguisa sausage, cod or tuna,

tomatoes and potatoes. I thought a South of a Border rendition of this nutritious stew

would be a welcome diversion! I have combined cooked heirloom beans grown in

Mexico with sausage, tuna , peppers, cilantro, Mexican oregano and nutritious greens

and vegetables! Though the traditional Fisherman’s Stew is wonderful, my South of the

Border fusion is divine! Enjoy with wild rice, boiled potato or a short pasta. Great on a

rainy day!
